About the Ski Resort

Mission Ridge is on the eastern side of the Cascade Mountains in central Washington, only 12 miles from the recreationally-oriented town of Wenatchee.

Wondering what makes Mission Ridge different from every other ski area in Washington? It's the snow, sunshine and guest services.

No other ski area in Washington receives as much acclaim for the quality of its snow as Mission Ridge does. Mission Ridge's dry snow and 300 days of yearly sunshine are known throughout the Northwest for providing a ski experience many skiers liken to Sun Valley, Idaho; Colorado and Utah. This is a place spoiled by nature, not by man.

Skiers of all abilities will find the kind of terrain they want, ranging from easy beginner slopes to miles of intermediate cruising terrain. Advanced and expert skiers have moguls, chutes, trees, bowls and super steeps to choose from.

From Wenatchee, head 12 miles up Squilchuck Road to the ski area. Free Ski Link bus service is available from Wenatchee on weekends and holidays.
